NEW MUSIC: Locals Only – Donte Peace

Donte Peace - Locals Only

Seattle rap upstart Donte Peace dropped this new EP, Locals Only, last month. According to the artist, there are two sides to this album’s story: Side A is “relaxed” and “chill,” and Side B is full of “bangers.” You be the judge.

NEW MUSIC: “Future is Bright” – Theoretics (feat. Shelton Harris)

Theoretics - Future Is Bright

Fresh for your Monday: the Theoretics with their latest One A Month drop, “Future is Bright,” featuring young Shelton Harris. Grab it for free below.

VIDEO: “Cops” – Nu Era (dir. by Amir Zahed)

A timely video from the Nu Era crew from their brief but assertive A Start 2 The Beginning EP.

NEW MUSIC: “Turn Up” – Caz Greez (feat. Bolo Nef & Nacho Picasso)

Turn Up - Caz Greez

Caz Greez and Bolo Nef, friends from the Underworld Dust Funk collective, exact a plot to destroy the “Turn Up,” by getting decidedly turnt down in this new track featuring Nacho Picasso. We’re running this in the morning, but it sounds like these cats never went to sleep.

NEW MUSIC: “Blame It On My Youth” – Brothers From Another (prod. by Nima Skeemz)

Blame it on My Youth - BFA

“Born in ’92” is the new “In this economy.” You can get away with anything if your generation’s right.

NEW MUSIC: “Sunsets” – Theoretics (feat. Grynch & Afrok)

Sunsets - Theoretics

From their “One A Month” release series, Theoretics recently dropped this soulful, introspective cut featuring Grynch and Olympia’s Afrok. Worth a spin.

NEW MUSIC: “No Worries” – Dark Time Sunshine

DTS - No Worries

Dark Time Sunshine kicks off their West Coast / Southwest / Midwest tour tonight at the Vera Project in Seattle. Submit yourselves to the duo’s heady brand of Sennheiser rap; it will make for a disorienting Friday work day, the way all Friday work days should be. Their 2012 record, ANX, remains one of the most engaging listens of the last five years. Oh, and they dropped this loosie a few days ago called “No Worries.”
